    997S Aerocup BodyKit

    Hey guys, am about to put in an order for one of these puppies. I know it's all down to personal preference but would be good to hear which one of these colours you think would best complement the body kit. Intended interior colour will be cocoa. So far, I'm thinking of Carrera White (see second picture). FYI, car will be driven in sunny Asia as I'm moving there in the next few months - white more suitable there, than in say, gloomy UK? Cheers, J.

    Its sort of like asking what color we like the GT3 in. For me its white.

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    LOL....yeah....it's hard not to be influenced by all the white GT3s seen in car mags. But that's what I'm trying to figure out....don't want to feel I'm being biased due to brainwashing!

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    I am tired of white. Since the topic is asking what we like, here, I prefer the Speed Yellow and Guards Red.

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    White would be a great color but with cocoa interior might not be the best choice. I think with white, it's either black interior or true lipstick red, or gray : for me. I'm not a fan of the beige. The grey would be great with the cocoa interior.

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    If it's got to be an Aerokit, then it's got to be a flashy color too: Yellow or Red.

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    yellow for the aerokit, but then I wouldn't choose the cocoa interior. And sine I love the cocoa, I'd say meteor grey. When you get tired of the arokit, you can always return it to a "normal" carrera s and still have a spectacular car then...

    white

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    White is back, and looking better than ever!

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    Guards red!! make that statement...it looks better in the metal...trust me!

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    YELLOOOWW!!

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    I couldn't decide on a colour using the car configurator. Seeing photos is so much better than seeing car configurator images BUT seeing the car in real life is obviously the best. IMO try to see it for yourself and if not, search for some GT3 pics here...

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    Well I love Basalt but then I hugely biased. Check out my new car pics of my 997S Aero that I took delivery of last friday.

    Failing that, Id be very tempted with Silver especially if you have fallen for Cocoa - however I realise you havnt shortlisted Silver. If you must have Cocoa then I think the Blue is the only colour you have chosen that looks cool. White will look great too, but I think black or red interior would go better than Cocoa.

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    Thanks for the feedback, all! Sounds like red, white, yellow and black are top choices. I did think of having it Meteor Grey with cocoa interior - awesome colour combo - my current Cayman S is Seal Grey and I regret not getting Cocoa for it! However, I feel Grey/Silver gives the Aerokit body a somewhat toy car appearance? Maybe it's just me......

    Adam2S - Mate...awesome pics - has definitely swung me towards black. Love the red seat belts too...and the girl in the pic is a nice optional extra too . Black gives the Aerokit bodyshape an understated cool; whereas white is more in your face - now should I go for the bling factor or the classic cool? Aaaargghhh.....choices choices!!

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    If anybody has any piccies or links to photos of 997s with the aerocup kit, please post - would be great to see more!

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    white will serve u well

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    i saw one the other day and immediately fell in love with it!

    Unfortunately, the picture gallery is still closed, so you currently see just 1 pic of it. If you are interested in the other pics in that color (cobalt) I will search my hard disk for them.

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    ewi - thanks for the link. Decision is getting tougher and tougher - the car looks darn nice in all the colours!

    BTW, does anybody know how prone the aerokit front spoiler is to being scratched when going over sleeping policement/bumps/steep car park ramps? If so, is there anyway to avoid it happening to the extent where you would need to replace your front lip frequently?

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    White or Red get's my vote with black interior and the seats and steering wheel stitched in Red!

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    white.

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    Hmmm....Meteor Grey could be a possibility. Check out this link: Grey GT3

    Doesn't look great on Porsche's "Build Your Car" simulator, but seems interesting in the metal and I think Cocoa interior would look complement it nicely...

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    meteor is indeed very nice in the flesh!

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    Loe - nice ride, I see.
    Got any piccies to share with us? I bet it looks great!

    Re: 997S Aerocup BodyKit

    JYH, nope no pics yet, since it will omny arrive november - december...
